The Libyan Foreign Minister Najla Al-Mangoush has called on Arab states, and Arab League to support the efforts of the United Nations to hold elections in Libya and prevail security as well as end transitional periods.
Al-Mangoush, in her opening remarks at the consultative meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Tripoli, said Libya should be allowed to exercise its rights at the Arab League, rejecting any kind of double standards in dealing with member states, and criticizing politicizing the Arab Leagu's charter and agenda.
She called for Arab solidarity as a last chance for hope of an official Arab system that leads to development, unity and understanding, instead of division for political reasons.
"In here in Tripoli, we ask you to look into the real narrative of the conditions of Tripoli not that negative one that had been trying to present the capital as a city in a state of continuous war. We urge you not to believe stories that say Tripoli is a land of war and destruction in an attempt to paint a bleak picture of Tripoli just like those paihted of other Arab capitals for decades after they had suffered from war and political entanglements." Al-Mangoush said.
The meeting was attended by delegations from Algeria, Tunisia, Qatar, Palestine, Oman, Sudan, and Comoros, in addition to the Special Representative of the African Union and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya.
